5 College Student

Campus Housing: The atmosphere of IUB is phenomenal to be within.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It's okay, but on-campus is superior.

5 College Student

Party Scene: There are a lot of parties to be had everywhere.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The food is quality everywhere.

3 College Student

Administration: It truly varies per topic.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Grades are the key at this institution.

4 College Student

Campus Food: There are a lot of options with room for more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are too small. A lot of rules but that's expected. My dorm needed upgrading, really old building

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process was very easy. I live in Teter and very much enjoy its proximity to my classes and dining areas. The residence halls are kept very clean and have a very enjoyable atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They do not tolerate anything at all. The RA's always know what is going on so people do not try to sneak things

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best parties take place in the apartment buildings.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got very little from the financial aid office. For a 10,000 dollar every semester, they only give me 800 dollars. I might just have to leave Indiana University because we cannot afford that kind of billing. I think the absolute worst of IU's financial aid office because they do not help and they do not listen. After crying and literally begging one day, they just told me to stop trying.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Although Woodland is very expensive, it is very good food. I ate there everyday just because that is where I lived at. It gets very old after awhile because sometimes you do not want to keep eating it over and over. There are a lot of different types of food and options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: To live on campus at Indiana University can sometimes be smothering because you are around a lot of people all the time. To me, nothing is spectacular about Indiana University. I am paying 10,000 a semester with loans because financial aid will not help me. Paying 20,000 a year, I feel as if IU should be phenomenal. It is a good experience, but if someone does not feel comfortable around a lot of people I advise them to not go to IU. The social atmosphere is average, because I am African -American and there are not a lot of African Americans that attend Indiana University.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are some sports that are a big deal to students, like basketball. But there are others that really go unnoticed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some great deals for housing outside campus but there are also some others that are not worthy at all.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are a lot of parties during the weekend, but really they are not that great most of the time. They are okay just to chill or do something different but they are not necessarily great.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of options and most of them deliver and are open late at night. The downside, is that most of this places are overpriced, in my opinion.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Quite hours are not respected at all, sometimes they are not even enforced by the RAs, in addition, there is no control whatsoever regardless of dorm visitations and guests who stay the night over.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships require a lot of work, I know I need them, but the chances of actually getting a scholarship (if you don't apply for mutliple) is really low, considering the number of students that apply for the same scholarship.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are places like Woodlands where you can actually get whatever you want, which is great. Sadly, not all food courts or c-stores are that way.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because it is closer to all your classes, also you get the chance to meet new people and to form a bigger social group. In addition, it is easier to clean since you only have to clean you own room.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It seems like there are very few options RPS gives for helping you find off campus housing, if any.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are so many different types of people you can meet at the parties, it definitely helped as a stress reliever.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I think the cost is a little pricey, especially for the places within walking distance.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
